Princess Cruises has raised the curtain on its new musical revue titled Magic to Do from the Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-winning composer of Wicked, Pippin and Godspell Stephen Schwartz.
The show, a cruise industry first, premiered onboard Crown Princess this week to rave reviews at a special event with Schwartz and the show’s creative team at the Port of Los Angeles.
Schwartz’s first production for a cruise line, Magic to Do celebrates his lifelong fascination with magic and combines thrilling illusions with some of his most famous songs, such as Magic to Do from Pippin and Defying Gravity from Wicked.
The show also includes a brand new song written exclusively for Princess called A Little Magic.
Brought to life by a vibrant cast, imaginative costumes and make-up, stunning scenic designs and baffling illusions, Magic to Do is now running in the Princess Theatre onboard Crown Princess and debuts aboard Ruby Princess and Emerald Princess later this year.
The partnership between Schwartz and Princess Cruises includes a multi-year collaboration to oversee the creative development of a total of four new musicals to debut across the fleet over the next several years.
